Losing guitar pick during Olympics performance of Diamonds And Peatls song was a mistake?

During that particular performance at the begining of guitar solo you can

see guitar pick flying out from Prince hands .

he finished the solo without a pick.

do you think it was a mistake he didnt plan to play without pick but lost it in the moment of excitment ?

Is this what the Org has come to, trying to dissect if/why Prince dropped a guitar pick?! You must've missed the part where he pulled another out of his pocket.

end of story.

He said there’s no such thing as accidents
There must be a meaning behind it

I always thought it looked intentional, and still do. An impromptu moment of inspiration? A rehearsed moment designed to impress? Who knows? But it doesn't look like a mistake in the least.

I just watched the video. He throws the pick away and then plays with his thumb for like 15-20 seconds. He doesn't pull out another one.

Not sure if it was intentional at the Olympics or not but he throws his pick away at the end of his Empty Room solo at Montreux 2009 and it’s cool as hell.
